The Rancho Santa Fe robotics team, Rancho Santa Fe Eagles 3, placed second out of 62 teams in the robotics performance category at the FLL Cup Invitational for Southern California, which was held Feb. 16. The team earned 355 points.
Team members Tyler Bovenzi and Alex Lillian (above), both sixth grade students at R. Roger Rowe School, spent countless hours programming their robot in preparation for this competition. They were, needless to say, thrilled with their performance but both agree that next year they want the number one spot!
A huge thank you to coach Mark Bovenzi and robotics teachers Dave Warner and John Gallipault for guiding the team. RSF School just began its robotics program last fall and has had tremendous success so far.
